obama's time in office, with the white house authorizing attacks in at least four countries -- afghanistan, pakistan, yemen and somalia. it's estimated that the cia and the united states military have undertaken more than three hundred drone strikes and killed about 2500 people. it's clear we have yet to understand the full impact of the country's drone war. one former obama security adviser calls the use of drone counterproductive. use of drones counterproductive, that is. and retired general stanley mcchrystal who championed use of drones in afghanistan is now advising caution. he says what scares me about the drone strikes is how they are perceived around the world. the resentment created by the use of american unmanned strikes is much greater than the average american anticipates and appreciates. they are hated on a visceral level, even by people who have never seen one or seen the everythings of one. yet earlier this week, the president nominated a man widely viewed as the administration's drone warrior to head the cia. obama counterterrorism adviser john brennan has ma
fear into the hearts of parents across this country. some of the parents, including president obama, called for tougher gun restrictions. the nra proposed a different solution, arm teachers, more security at schools. gun clubs claim hundreds of teachers are applying for free weapons training. 200 people showed up for this class outside salt lake city, utah. not all of the people who took the course are teachers, but some are. one of them is with us tonight. i'm joined this evening by carolyn kane, a grade school teacher in utah county, utah, who teaches special education in kindergarten to the sixth grade. carolyn, great to have you with us tonight. the newtown shooting, did it have a profound effect on you to bring you to this conclusion? >> absolutely. getting a concealed/carry permit is something i thought about for quite a while. but when i was watching the news and listening to the teacher stories, i couldn't help but put myself in their shoes. and wonder what would i do? you know, and just start to think about what would i do in that situation. and i wanted options. >> why do
the election. well, most of the country actually really liked obama. whatever they thought of his policies and i think refusing to work in the realm of the real really hurt republicans. i would offer the same advice to some gun control advocates who often refuse to work in the realm of the real. i think they truly believe most of the country is anti-gun and despises the nra and that just isn't the case. there's a great piece in bloomberg business week saying what explains the effectiveness of blocking gun control, the nra wins because it's popular with a broad swath of americans. he says dan gross, the brady campaign president, promotes a common misconception that the nra bamboozled lawmakers in to thinking that the lobby is more powerful than it is like some kind of real world "wizard of oz." and doesn't square with the facts. 45% of americans live in a home with one gun or more. 54% feel favorably about the nra so there's some reality that i think needs to be injected into these debates and if advocates deal with that reality, they might be better positioned to have some of their argumen

is i think we need to take the bigger picture. this is not just about who president obama appoints to his cabinet. we know this country has changed demographically and a broad coalition of voters elected this president, but i think we should hold everybody accountable for making sure there's diversity. while i was disappointed to see thus far we haven't seen the kind of diversity i hope we will see when we see the full picture, i think there's a much bigger question and a much bigger issue here to which this president has been, you know, a champion of making sure that the doors are open for everybody. >> right. okay. goldie, the president's enemies, who aren't exactly famous for their love of diversity, are making a huge production out of this issue, but this president has done better or at least as well as his two immediately predecessors. he has a 50/50 split of men and women in his staff and he's appointed two women to the supreme court. doesn't that in itself regardless of the current presentation of the cabinet, doesn't that indicate a commitment to diversity? >> it certainly

of power that president obama has chosen to present to the country and the world with his second term cabinet picks is striking. except for the african-american top of the pyramid for its retro look. white and male. it's "mad men" goes to washington, except it's leaving." >> so much of the debates that went on in the 2012 campaign was about the role of women. it was about mitt romney and his so-called lack of understanding of the role of women and lack of sort of acknowledgement of that. so now, the white house, where they roll out white man after white man, in terms of these top cabinet posts i think it has struck people as some srt of dissident in terms of what the obama claimed to be about and what they're presenting now. i think it's odd to me that they would be so heavy-handed in dealing with this. that someone in the white house didn't notice that they may have had an optics problem in rolling these folks out back to back to back. so what you have them do, of course, is say, well, they've got all these other people who are sane in the cabinet. >> let me interrupt you there. i wa
